Stands on a hill above the valley of the Tavollo torrent, which marks the border between the Marche and Romagna in the Gabicce Mare area.
In early times (13th Century) it was called Castrum Tumbae Montis Pelosi, from which it has obtained its popularly name of 'Tomba'. It became the scene of many battles and conflicts between the Malatestas and the Montefeltros, and was later ruled by the lords who governed Pesaro. The Della Rovere family built a castle here, which was demolished at the end of the 19th Century. The Sanctuary of San Pio Martire was, and still is, a place of pilgrimage - the urn containing the remains of the saint is still conserved here. All of the castles which were dotted across the landscape in this area have disappeared. Among them were Monteluro, Montepeloso and Montelevecchio (now Belvedere Fogliense, because of its exceptional panoramic view across the Foglia Valley).
The well known Fano writer Fabio Tombari (1899-1989) lived in a large house in the country at Rio Salso for several decades until his death. His works include "Frusaglia", "Il libro degli animali", "I ghiottoni", "L'incontro", "Il libro di Tonino" and "Renda e Rondò".
